NATIONAL CASA ACTION ALERT
For 10 years National CASA received $12 million in funding for the CASA program through the Victims of Child Abuse Act. Last year Congress reduced the funding for CASA programs to $4.5 million. And now, the Administration has proposed eliminating all funding for this vital program in FY 2013.
CASA representatives met with 40 congressional representatives last week and learned that there is a chance to restore full funding provided enough congressional offices urge appropriators to do the right thing. But timing is critical. Help us restore CASA funding by:
